Because this is the 50th story we have featured I wanted to have a few surveys and quizzes happening this month, here is the first one.

You will have to go to the featured story thread to answer some of these questions.

1) How many of the featured stories have you actually read?

2) Did you read it because it was featured?

3) Do you ever go into the featured threads to see what the authors have to say?

4) Have you ever actively participated in a discussion in the featured threads or asked an author a question?

5) Have you ever been featured?

6) What has been your favorite of the featured stories so far and why?

7) Is there a story that hasn't been featured that you would like us to feature? Name it and tell us why

8) Do you find yourself checking to see what stories are featured each month?

9) If you could pick one of your stories to be featured which one would it be?

10) Any comment or suggestions in general for future featured stories?

1) How many of the featured stories have you actually read?
I think probably around 10 or so.

2) Did you read it because it was featured?
I think the only one I read because it was featured was Why I'd Do It All Again. I have tried to read others but I never finish them within the month.

3) Do you ever go into the featured threads to see what the authors have to say?
Always!

4) Have you ever actively participated in a discussion in the featured threads or asked an author a question?
For the stories I have read, yes, I usually do.

5) Have you ever been featured?
Yup!

6) What has been your favorite of the featured stories so far and why?
I think Why I'd Do It All Again. I read it during that month so it was fun to participate and read the discussions while I was reading the story.

7) Is there a story that hasn't been featured that you would like us to feature? Name it and tell us why
I think a couple of the stories I really like right now are already in line to be featured. I would really like to see Remember Me This Way by Rose be featured though, it's really well written and I think we'd be able to have a good discussion about it since there's a lot of complicated character stuff that happens.

8) Do you find yourself checking to see what stories are featured each month?
I look at the thread to see what it is, yep.

9) If you could pick one of your stories to be featured which one would it be?
I think I'd have to say Running Up That Hill since it's so different than the previous story I had featured. Plus a lot of people who read it are regulars on this forum so I think we could have a good chat about it.

10) Any comment or suggestions in general for future featured stories?

I like the way that we do the featured stories now, where we read it together and discuss the chapters we read in that week. I think it's a good system and makes reading the stories easier.

1) How many of the featured stories have you actually read?
22

2) Did you read it because it was featured?
Some of them, yes.

3) Do you ever go into the featured threads to see what the authors have to say?
Always, sometimes it helps me decide whether to read the story.

4) Have you ever actively participated in a discussion in the featured threads or asked an author a question?
I always try to participate.

5) Have you ever been featured?
Once, but I took that story down as I got writers block on it.  Hopefully I'll continue it one day.

6) What has been your favorite of the featured stories so far and why?
I can't pick just one, so I'll have to say Sinister Devotion, Ray of Hope, Ground Zero, Not Your Average Cinderella Story, Hawk and a Handsaw, By My Side and Song For The Undead.  I've picked them because these are stories which are so well written and really draw the reader in and make them want more.

7) Is there a story that hasn't been featured that you would like us to feature? Name it and tell us why
Remember Me This Way by Rose.  It's a brilliant story and like Steph said previously, the discussion would be active as a lot of the readers are regulars on here.

8) Do you find yourself checking to see what stories are featured each month?
I always check to see what story is featured and try to read, I haven't had a chance with this month's story yet though.

9) If you could pick one of your stories to be featured which one would it be?
It would have to be Rewind as that is my only story I'm working on right now.  I really enjoyed writing Games as well though, but that story wasn't very long.

10) Any comment or suggestions in general for future featured stories?
I can't think of anything else and think the way it is now works great.

1) How many of the featured stories have you actually read?
About a handful, definitely no more than 10 if I had to guess lol.

2) Did you read it because it was featured?

I'm weird, I think the only one I read because it was featured was "Not Your Average Cinderella Story". Most either I've already read, or just a story that didn't appeal to me personally.

3) Do you ever go into the featured threads to see what the authors have to say?
Sometimes, I like seeing writers talk about their work. Just cause I know each of us have our own methods/techniques so it's interesting seeing what people say.

4) Have you ever actively participated in a discussion in the featured threads or asked an author a question?
I think I've at least popped in to say things, I know I did when YBS was featured anyway LOL. Oh and I was active when Something Beautiful was featured! *proud of myself lmao* It's not often when I do, but that's just because I'm an incredibly picky fanfic reader, so there's only a handful of the featured stories that either got me to read, or I already did read so I discussed lol.

5) Have you ever been featured?
Yep Smiley. Once for "Just Another Day" and again for my collab with Julie, "Song For The Undead"

6) What has been your favorite of the featured stories so far and why?
Either YBS or "Why I'd Do It All Again", I adored those stories. I probably enjoyed the month "Why" was featured more but that may be because I played Oprah that month lmao.

7) Is there a story that hasn't been featured that you would like us to feature? Name it and tell us why
Um...well shit lmao. I think all the stories I want to see featured either already have been, or soon will be. Like Curtain Call, Something Beautiful...hm m...maybe we can have another featured Mare story? Maybe Lurks, or something old school like The Apartment. (If Mare can remember that far back LOL  Grin)

8) Do you find yourself checking to see what stories are featured each month?
I'll usually pop in and see.

9) If you could pick one of your stories to be featured which one would it be?
"Remember Me This Way", it's the only one as of now that's far enough along to be featured that hasn't been yet. That and it's my first attempt at a Psychological Angst story and so I'm really proud of what I've done with it. Even with all my second guessing I do as I write it LOL.

10) Any comment or suggestions in general for future featured stories?
I like the way it's done so far...though I volunteer to play Oprah again next time we feature Mare! Smiley

I know this is old...but I'm bored you guys!

1) How many of the featured stories have you actually read? I'm so bad. I read four and started two, which at some point I may finish. I'm really bad at reading.

2) Did you read it because it was featured?No, I had already started reading.

3) Do you ever go into the featured threads to see what the authors have to say? Yes I do. As Rose said, everyone has their own style so it's nice to see how everyone's ideas come to life.

4) Have you ever actively participated in a discussion in the featured threads or asked an author a question? Yes, it was mostly with LIfe According to Baylee by Alota and My Mind's Eye.

5) Have you ever been featured? Yes, I have. Twice.

6) What has been your favorite of the featured stories so far and why? Same ones I mentioned in #4

7) Is there a story that hasn't been featured that you would like us to feature? Name it and tell us why On Nightingale Hill by Filiklepto. I would like it to be featured because it's so well written and she pulls you into the fantasy world. You are hooked as soon as you start.

8) Do you find yourself checking to see what stories are featured each month? Yes, I do tend to check.

9) If you could pick one of your stories to be featured which one would it be? At the time I would have to say 'Just One Kiss'

10) Any comment or suggestions in general for future featured stories? I just made some recommendation s on the featured story thread.
